      SIMON OTTENBERG is Professor of Anthropology and Adjunct Professor of Political Science, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington. The late Nora Ottenberg inspired me to begin this paper. I write it in her memory. I wish to thank Marjorie Halpin and Ross Crumrine for reading an early draft, and JoAnn Campbell, David Givens, Arthur Kleinman, and David Spain for comments on a later version.
